VENICE – In a Region where the Alloy it came to 50 percent of the votes and where the governor Luca Zaia commands undisturbed for almost ten years, you would expect the electoral referendum of Matteo Salvini was approved with hands down. A formality. And instead the majority of the center right has remedied an unprecedented fool, at least in Venice. For a vote, the referendum proposal was rejected. 26 consents were needed, only 25 arrived, due to a collective distraction, numerous absences and the inability of group leaders to summon regional councilors at the crucial moment. And in the background, even some stomach pains of the center-right non-Northern League.

In fact, out of 42 present voters were 41 (did not express themselves Antonio Guadagnini di Siamo Veneto), 25 votes in favor, 14 against and abstentions 2. As a qualified majority was needed (on the rightful, which is 51) and not a simple majority of voters, the regional council rejected the referendum that Salvini wants turn into a showdown with the government after the resignation this summer. Because the secretary of the League would like reintroduce the absolute majority, making the proportional part of the electoral law void.

Everyone hastened to say that the will does not enter. And yet, a few days ago, the leader of the League Nicola Finco he had declared: “We expect the allies to be extremely loyal and collaborative. Not only on local issues, but also and above all on what is the mother of all battles: autonomy! ". And he had warned Forza Italia is Brothers of Italy: "The alliance is not taken for granted". In short, there were no premises of serenity to bring everyone into the classroom.

Perhaps it was a short circuit dictated by too much security. But that leaves its mark. The accounts are soon made. When it came to voting, a councilor on the Zaia Presidential List, Sonia Brescacin, was out. Another counselor, Nazzareno Gerolimetto, was absent from the session. For different reasons three councilors of the Brothers of Italy did not vote: the councilors Elena Donazzan, Massimo Giorgetti (he was talking to Councilor De Berti) e Sergio Berlato engaged with a group of parliamentarians right inside Palazzo Ferro Fini, the seat of the regional council. Something did not work then in the direction of the group leaders, Nicola Finco for the Northern League and Silvia Rizzotto for the list Zaia President. Had he been present, the governor's vote would tip the balance towards approval. But he didn't see himself. And the counselor Piero Ruzzante of LeU commented: "President Zaia was missing, the vote you are lacking is yours".

And to think that the hyper-Northern League of Veneto, a few weeks ago, was the forerunner of the approval of the abrogative referendum compared to seven other regions (Piedmont, Lombardy, Friuli, Sardinia, Abruzzo, Basilicata and Liguria). The validity of the referendum proposal, by law, requires at least five regional councils. But since the Cassation had asked for a reformulation of the question, not considering it sufficiently clear, the regional council had to meet and vote a second time. In addition to Guadagnini's non-vote and absences, the abstentions of the blue were decisive Marino Zorzato and of Franco Ferrari (Civic for the Veneto). The Cinquestelle Jacopo Berti, Erika Baldin, Manuel Brusco and Simone Scarabel, commented: "The granitic majority of Zaia is not so granitic and in front of Salvini's propaganda not everyone gets in line". The president of the regional council, Roberto Ciambetti: "We will deposit the outcome of the vote on the amendments to the referendum questions".
